To Be Determined

Why can't everything just happen the way the silver screen always says it might?

I need to find a way to make this dream my life.

With every song I gain a little more traction, but nothing seems to play out the way the stories write.

I can't sit by and let these tales become the knife.

 

As my mind starts spinning, I find me telling myself, slow down and...

 

Breathe tonight; you only get one shot to make them believers.

So clear your throat, hit every note and breathe.

 

Night after night I've always played my heart out; I've authored lines that would infiltrate your mind.

I'll craft the design that will bring my fate to its knees before it's confined, then I'll tell myself:

 

Breathe tonight; (Tonight) you only get one shot to make them believers.

So clear your throat, hit every note like it's your last one.

Leave behind, (Behind) and all the times they broke your heart, they only led you here.

Woah, so let it out, the time is now, just breathe, just breathe, nothing will happen on its own.

 

Before, I tended to pick my mind for what I am capable of, but my approach has changed.

Now, I pick up my pen instead and I'll guide it to make better use of my brain.

I'll be the one writing my story, no one else can tell me how this ends.

So let me quick pour out my heart before it mends.

 

Breathe tonight; you only get one shot to make them believers. (Why can't everything just happen)

So clear your throat, (The way the silver screen always says it might) hit every note like it's your last one. (I need to find)

Leave behind, and all the times they broke your heart, they only led you here. (I can't sit by)

So let it out, the time is now. (The time is now)

 

Maybe Now

Hit me up, I wanna hear you address me cellularly, or am I thoroughly dead to your memory?

I might as well be I hear from you so seldomly.

When every once in a while you decide to rediscover me, and your excuses arise with regularity.

You almost convinced me, the way that you said that you missed me.

I can’t take the way you play me

 

I don’t know how to make you come around, but everything we had going’s gone.

I’m safe and sound here in another’s arms, after years of you putting me on.

Well, maybe now, maybe now I can finally get through your head now that we’re dead.

We’re just not meant to be anything other.

 

The clock is up, your allotted time for response is gone and if I may, I’d like to call and have you pick up once today.

Damn, girl, you’re driving me crazy.

 

You tell me that you’re busy, I know, I’m busy too but baby, you’ve got to understand what you’ve put me through.

The candle is burnt at both ends and I’m left without you.

 

I don’t know how to make you come around, but everything we had going's gone.

I’m safe and sound here in another’s arms, after years of you putting me on.

Well, maybe now, maybe now I can finally get through your head now that we’re dead.

We're just not meant to be anything other.

 

I don’t know how to make you come around, but now I’m safe and sound here in another’s arms. (I don't know how to make you come around)

Maybe now, maybe now I can finally get through your head now that we’re dead, that we're dead. (Maybe now I can finally get through your head)

 

I don’t know how to make you come around, but everything we had going's gone. (I don't know how to make you come around)

I’m safe and sound here in another’s arms, after years of you putting me on. (I'm safe and sound here in another's arms)

Well, maybe now, maybe now I can finally get through your head now that we’re dead. (Maybe now I can finally get through your head)

Just not meant to be anything other.

 

All Over Again

I'm listening, but who do you think you are kidding?

Memories I've formed over time can't die overnight, I don't care what you say.

I'm flipping, something inside of me's missing; everything's altering right in front of my eyes, I'm being carried away, away...

 

My mind is gone, but my heart says I should know you from once when time stood still, I thought.

Everything's starting to spin, there's this connection that's fighting through everything I've known and now I am distraught,

It's like I'm falling all over again.

 

This riptide has rapidly turned into sunlight, scorching through shadows that might have been twisted with lies; it's too early to say.

I'm being put in my place by this landslide.

The mystery to date is "what's keeping me alive?"

But I know now, it's when you're around that I'm carried away.

 

My mind is gone, but my heart says I should know you from once when time stood still, I thought.

Everything's starting to spin, there's this connection that's fighting through everything I've known and now I am distraught,

It's like I'm falling all over...

 

There's a space between real and wrong, a place where a man is defined, unlike most who hide.

I know where I belong, no matter the cost it's with you.

There's a space between real and wrong, a place where a man is defined, unlike most who hide.

I know where I belong, no matter the cost it is you I'll be close to.

 

My mind is gone, but my heart says I should know you from once when time stood still, I thought.

Everything's starting to spin, there's this connection that's fighting through everything I've known and now I am distraught,

It's like I'm falling all over again. (There's a space between real and wrong, a place where a man is defined, unlike most who hide)

I'm falling all over again. (I know where I belong, no matter the cost it's with you)

 

My mind is gone, but my heart says I should know you from once when time stood still, I thought...

 

Just This Once

It'd take an eternity for me to explain how I felt when I first saw your face and felt your warm embrace.

It's so hard for me to breathe when I'm in your arms, you take my breath away.

You mended my heart when it was apart, don't ever leave me.

 

Cause I cannot fight what is real, it's the way you make me feel.  I'm no longer running in circles.

 

Our hands fit so perfectly, a sign that only we could know.

Caught up in every echoed smile that started with "Hello".

Aligned sporadically, you've always got me guessing, but one thing I know is right:

If signs are enough, they're all pointing at us; I need you with me tonight.

 

Cause I cannot fight what is real, it's the way you make me feel.  I'm no longer running in circles.

Now, just this once, I will die to lay in bed with you tonight and freeze time forever.

 

Cause I can't be without your touch, your laugh, your lips, your smile, your perfume.

There's nothing better (There's nothing better) than spending all night on the phone just listening to you.

Under the moonlight you're so beautiful, (You're so beautiful) I only hope that this won't end up being just a once-in-a-lifetime event.

 

Cause I cannot fight what is real, it's the way you make me feel.  I'm no longer running in circles.

Now, just this once, I will die to lay in bed with you tonight and freeze time forever.

 

Carry Me On

In a moment you breathe, and shutter the cold from your neck to your feet.

You bury your head in your arms so no one can see your tears soak up your sleeves.

Distance gets old, so old.

 

When the world tears a hole in your daydreams and scrambles what once were the words to your song,

Time forces you to make sense of the changes; but Heaven's own Angels will carry you on, the Heaven's own Angels will carry you on.

 

In a moment I've gone away, been rolling like a stone for the last couple days.

I almost feel dead, but my heart quivers enough to stay alive through this unwanted wait.

Distance gets old, so old.

 

When the world tears a hole in my daydreams and scrambles what once were the words to my song,

Time forces me to make sense of the changes; but Heaven's own Angels will carry me on, the Heaven's own Angels will carry me on, the Heaven's own Angels will carry me on.

 

But I don't want to be the one, be the one whose lungs collapse when shouting at the sky when hope is all but lost and faith wants to die.

How can I survive?  My heart on both coasts, I reach to grab and pull them closer, but I can't on my own.

 

When the world tears a hole in your daydreams and scrambles what once were the words to your song,

Time forces you to make sense of the changes; but Heaven's own Angels will carry you on.

 

I Need a Drive

Coming home late I'm messing up, I never seem to get things right; now I'm stressing out, anticipating.

Screaming out loud, "I've had enough!"  What's waiting at home for me?

Do they know how bad this mess is that they're making?

And just sitting here isn't helping.

 

Woah, I'm freaking out, and I can't shake what's eating me inside.

Woah, I'm leaving behind everything.  I know what I need; all I need is a drive.

 

On a typical scale from one to ten, how deep am I in this time?  Well according to them, I'm approaching eleven.

If I could just make them happy would I be better than I am now?

 

Woah, I'm freaking out, and I can't shake what's eating me inside.

Woah, I'm leaving behind everything.  I know what I need; all I need is a drive.

 

I need a drive in the night from here to nowhere, out of sight.  I don't care where I go, but I can't stay here.

There's no remedy that can replace the life-saving wind felt on my face and the radio turned up loud, all I want now is a drive. (Don't ask me why I can't stay here, I need to go)

 

Woah, I'm freaking out, and I can't shake what's eating me inside.

Woah, I'm leaving behind everything.  I know what I need; all I need is a drive. (Don't ask me why I can't stay here, I need to go)

 

A.W.O.L.

The waves hear me sigh for you, and now they're whispering to me your name.

As I gaze at the shore, the wind meets the tide, and it gracefully states the same.

 

My world is alive, and your heartbeat's to blame.

Laying here this vacancy's drowning my mind; I can't fall asleep, haven't for weeks,

Cause I'm too busy daydreaming of my empty bed and whatever it takes to make you fill it.

 

The sun lights the sky for you, and now it's brighter than it's ever shone.

And though you're light years away, the length seems to die when everything I see reminds me I'm not alone.

 

My world is alive, and the fault is your own; it helps me survive while I wait for my heart to come home.

Laying here this vacancy's drowning my mind; I can't fall asleep, haven't for weeks,

Cause I'm too busy daydreaming of my empty bed and whatever it takes to make you fill it.

 

Try and navigate through the clouds to sail away, sail away.

Fight the wake and take the current to wherever it leads, cause fate will bring you right back to me.

 

Laying here this vacancy's drowning my mind; I can't fall asleep, haven't for weeks,

Cause I'm too busy daydreaming of my empty bed and whatever it takes to make you fill it.

 

My mind navigates through the clouds to sail away, sail away. (My mind navigates through the clouds, through the clouds)

As I lay all alone in my bed, I think of what it takes to make you fill it; whatever it takes to make you fill it, whatever it takes to make you fill it. (I lay all alone in my bed; you're in my head)

 

When I'm With You

I watch the sky; count the stars, to pass the time.

I notice two that remind me of you and your brown eyes.

Spending every waking moment wishing I was there.

Hoping, believing, daydreaming.

 

I don’t know why, but when I’m with you everything just feels so right.

Whether we’re together or on the phone all night.

I melt inside; when I see you my whole world is in your eyes.

And nothing can come between us now.

 

I’m yours forever and a day.

 

When you’re in my eyes, and I’m in your arms, it feels so right. (Feels so right)

And the moment you say you’ll love me always gives me butterflies. (I feel so alive)

You save me daily by the way you make me fall for you time and again.

I know this is true I feel it every time I see you; kiss me now and I’ll never leave you.

 

I don’t know why but when I’m with you everything just feels so right.

Whether we’re together or on the phone all night.

I melt inside; when I see you my whole world is in your eyes.

And nothing can come between us now.

 

I’m yours forever and a day.

 

I don’t know why, but when I’m with you everything just feels so right.

Whether we’re together or on the phone all night.

I melt inside; when I see you my whole world is in your eyes.

And nothing can come between us now.

 

I’m yours forever and a day, forever and a day.

 

Discovery

Slow down, I feel the sound embracing me tonight.

It's the sunrise that caught my eye oh so long ago.

And it's finally light up my sky.

My soul is on fire; I've waited a lifetime for this day.

 

Nothing can take away the heart that's beating you.

You can't fake the way that it makes you come alive again.

 

Hold on I'm emerced in the sun and I'm fighting the thought of night.

I am paralyzed 'cause I don't want this to die.

So before it goes, I'm gonna light up my own sky.

My soul is on fire; I've waited a lifetime for this day.

So I'm gonna break out to be the one who's constantly taking your breath away.

 

I've always believed in what I can't see.

I'm out of my mind but I don't want to recover.

Show me a line I've crossed and I'll show you the will to discover.

What makes me alive, alive, alive. (Nothing can take away the heart that's beating you)

You make me come alive. (You can't fake the way that it makes you come alive again)

 

Nothing can take away the heart that's beating you.

You can't fake the way that it makes you come alive again.

 

The Truth Comes Out

Hello, it’s clear to see you’ve been anticipating me.

Well I have something to tell you that you may not believe.

If I stutter when I speak, it’s only cause the butterflies in my chest have got my tongue.

So here we go now

 

I know it was soon for me too, I was fine to fly solo and so were you.

Neither of us was ready for what we were about to do.

And I haven’t been quite the same since I first decided to make a move.

And it’s from the change in me I know this is true.

 

I fell under the influence of you, somehow, and now I’m looking down to see how far I’ve come.

I’m caught up in the look that makes this true.

And I've found the silence to be so loud when my heartbeat’s skipping.

Woah, when my heartbeat’s skipping.

 

Forget taking it slow, we’re traveling at light speed, cautions in the wind, and my soul is finally freed.

You’re everything I want and you always seem to know just what I need.

To lose you would be a disaster, so I am yours forever after.

Tell me how I just saw you but I need you right now.

 

I fell under the influence of you, somehow, and now I’m looking down to see how far I’ve come.

I’m caught up in the look that makes this true.

And I've found the silence to be so loud when my heat skips a beat.

 

I go under when we’re together; the clocks won’t stop freezing anymore.

Time keeps stalling.

This moment may last forever; my eyes just can’t leave yours anymore.

As I keep falling

 

I fell under the influence of you, somehow, and now I’m looking down to see how far I’ve come.

I’m caught up in the look that makes this true.

And I've found the silence to be so loud when my heartbeat’s skipping. When my heartbeat's skipping.

 

With This Lullaby

The moon and the sun haven’t been number one on my Beautiful Top Ten since we've met.

I confess, seeing you smile is Heaven on earth.

 

Star light, star bright, star I wish upon tonight. Oh, wish I may; wish I might not have to leave your side.

 

So I’ll say goodnight (Say goodnight) with this lullaby that I’ve had constantly stuck in my head.

Since the moment our eyes first connected.

And I’ll hold you tight (I'll hold you tight) until our lips collide, and it feels like we’re floating on air.

I promise I’ll take you there.

 

The stars in the sky, they had no reply when I asked if they could hold their own compared to your eyes.

Which sank into me, taking away my

 

Star light, star bright, star I wish upon tonight. Oh, wish I may; wish I might not have to leave your side.

 

So I’ll say goodnight (Say goodnight) with this lullaby that I’ve had constantly stuck in my head.

Since the moment our eyes first connected.

And I’ll hold you tight (I'll hold you tight) until our lips collide, and it feels like we’re floating on air.

I promise I’ll take you there.

 

So I’ll hold you tight until our lips collide, and it feels like we’re floating on air –

(Feels like we're floating, feels like we're floating)

 

They can’t stop us now, (They can't stop us now) we’ll take on the world ‘til the end, hand in hand, unbreakable.

They can’t slow us down, (They can't slow us down) forever is ours from here on out.

 

In this moment we’ve spent in this weather, (So I'll say goodnight with the lullaby that I've had constantly stuck in my head)

We’ve convinced fate to keep us together.

And nothing can tear us apart.

Come whatever...

 

I'm Here If You Want Me

I stare at your picture; I fall asleep to your bright eyes watching over me.

I dream forever of you and I in each other’s arms, now I'm on my knees, on my knees.

 

And I'm not feeding you a line, there's something about this night.  I fade to grey, but you turn to white.

There's something inside me growing, it's something about you showing me what it feels to be alive.

 

I pray to Heaven that I could someday feel the same way you felt for me.

You've waited so long, and I've finally come to my senses; you're all that's left to make my life complete.

Make me complete, cause I can't find my way without you here to guide my feet.

 

And I'm not feeding you a line, there's something about this night.  I fade to grey, but you turn to white.

There's something inside me growing, it's something about you showing me what it feels to be alive.

 

So I'm here if you want me, I'm here if you want me, oh, I'm here if you want me.

 

I'm here if you want me. (I stare at your picture)

I'm here if you want me. (I fall asleep to your bright eyes watching over me)

I'm here if you want me. (I dream forever)

I'm here if you want me. (Of you and I in each other’s arms, now I'm on my knees)

I'm here if you want me. (I stare at your picture / If you still want me, I'll make you happy)

I'm here if you want me. (I fall asleep to your bright eyes watching over me / Lift you up off the ground, just let your guard down)

I'm here if you want me. (I dream forever / If you still want me, I'll make you happy)

(Of you and I in each other's arms, now I'm on my knees / Lift you up off the ground, just let your guard down)

I'm here if you want me.
